PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

'The Friendship Book' is something I use when I have students in my classroom who are not acting like a 'good friend' to their classmates.

The first thing I do is conduct a lesson with either my whole class, just the girls, or just the boys (depends who is involved). I discuss how our feelings get hurt and how we sometimes hurt other's feelings without realizing it. My students are almost never outrightly mean, so I focus on tone of voice, body language, dismissive behavior, ignoring, leaving out, and being exclusive. Students are given the chance to share a time they have had their feelings hurt (no names).

Then, I discuss how to be a problem solver. I model how to speak with a person who has hurt your feelings. Finally, I ask the students to speak with me privately if they would like me to help them talk to a classmate about how they have been feeling.

At this point, I distribute 'The Friendship Book'. We go over the traits of a good friend and then each student fills out the self survey. I make as many interview/web copies as students in the group for each 'Friendship Book'. I make sure to model filling out a web and interview sheet on one of the students. Over the next week, each child interviews and fills out a web for all the students in the group.

Everyone keeps their 'Friendship Book' when we have completed the exercise.
